Recent guest reviews

It's very convenient to commute to Zurich Airport, only two stops by tram. The room is sparkling clean and the stuff are friendly.

We stayed here b/c we literally just needed a place to sleep that was close to the airport. Small rooms, small beds, could barely move around in the shower, and their plugs were different than any other plugs/outlets we had throughout Switzerland so our adapter did not fit. However, the room was clean and staff were friendly.

Prefect hotel for a one night stay before an early morning flight out of Zürich.

From airport, accessing hotel not convenient. Once here, both comfortable and friendly accommodation S.

The Ibis Budget Zurich Airport is exactly as it says it is - a budget hotel! The rooms are basic and small, but space is used efficiently. Given that, there's not a lot of privacy in the room if you're sharing with other people - the shower is in the room, so if you step out the shower door, you're essentially stepping out into the bedroom next to the bed. Rooms have a modern and clean feel, and the bed is comfortable. Amenities are basic, with shower/soap in a dispenser, a few towels, and a bar of soap by the sink. Within the hotel there are vending machines downstairs and a microwave (does not take credit cards). There is a nearby Italian restaurant should you want to go out for food. The hotel is located by the tram, which can easily be taken from the airport. But, don't mistake this hotel with the other Ibis hotels in Zurich (this one does NOT have a shuttle from the airport).

Great place for a one night! Super close to the train. Very easy to get to old town.

Less than 24 hour layover this provided convenient quick access to airport. Probably would not stay for extended period of time over 2 days simply because of distance to other services and locations.

This hotel room was cute - like a spaceship! - and easy to airport. If that is all you are doing, then it is ok. It had things that made it unpleasant: Trains to return from city stop at 11:30 and the schedule is not 100% tourist-mistake proof - if you miss it, you can expect an expensive cab ride. Zurich is crazy expensive. The #10 does NOT come back after 11:30, even though it sure looks like it does. AC control was off and you could not fully open the window. :( The bathroom door had no handle or lock on the inside - luckily you can pull it shut with your foot based on the large opening at the bottom.... Bed is HARD.

Was just what we needed for an overnight stay before heading to the airport. We stayed in two other Ibis budget hotels on this trip (Lucerne and Zurich West) and thought this was the nicest one overall. The lobby was nicer and they provided a foot towel for the shower which the other ones did not. Also the air conditioning worked the best here. The rooms are small and the same as the other Ibis' but it serves its purpose. They also have a great laundry room which we used.

Very nice staff, small but clean rooms, right next to tram!

This is a cozy, small hotel very close to the airport by the light rail metro train that stops literally across the street from the hotel. It is only 2 stops from the airport or about a 3 minute train ride. Standard room is very small, but get the job done for a very quick layover or stay in Zurich near the airport. As long as you are not trying to sleep during daylight hours, it is a quiet location. If you are trying to sleep during daylight hours, then the sound of the planes overhead may be a nuisance to you.

Only 5 minutes drive to airport for early flight. The outlets do not accept standard European adapters sold in US so could not charge our phones - had to buy ibis supplied adapter for 10 CHF. Bed was comfortable. AC was not great but adequate. Very busy place at check in time.

The IBIS Budget is very conveniently located just 2 tram stops from the Airport. Didn't try the restaurant but all the other facilities were just fine. And the price was much better than other hotels in the area.

Easy check in with friendly staff. Parking on site. Super close to the airport. Room is "micro" but it absolutely works for one night. Really liked this hotel.

Good location, basic, breakfast ok, no clean the room, small room but ok

I have an enjoyable stay. Room needs A/C even in 24 to 26 C outside as window cannot be opened with flying mosquitos.

overall quite good but very "budget". Minimal room confort.

The hotel is efficient, clean and modern. Its quite new and the rooms are clean and functional. If you need to stay a night before you have a connecting flight its a good option and easy to get to via the tram.

Dear Christian Thank you for taking time to write some comments about your stay in our hotel and Zürich. Thank you for mentioning our good airport location. All the rooms in our hotel are of the same size and that belongs to the ibis budget standard. Bigger rooms you can find in our ibis and ibis style hotels. Zürich is one of the most expensive city on the world. I still hope you had a good stay. Best regards Ibis Budget Zürich Airport
